WHAT IS ACCUTITE?
AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive radiofrequency contraction device on the market. AccuTite delivers precision heating to small and delicate areas of the face and under eyes, with the science and safety recognized with the Radiofrequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) family of technologies.
HOW IS THE ACCUTITE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
AccuTite is a minimally invasive procedure that delivers results without forcing patients to go under the knife. At NOVA SurgiCare, PC, it is performed in the office with Intravenous Sedation (IV) or without anesthesia, and no knives or scalpels are used.
The patient remains comfortable during the procedure thanks to a local anesthetic. After the patient is numb, Dr. Hamrah uses the AccuTite hand-held cannula applicator to transfer radiofrequency directly into the fat with an internal electrode. The RF energy then travels up through the tissues to the external electrode on the skin surface. The system monitors both the internal and external temperatures in real time which ensures adequate heating of the fat and skin while automatically shutting off before unsafe temperatures are reached.
Depending on the treated areas, microcannulas may then be used to remove the melted fat and oil. An AccuTite procedure can last as little as 20 minutes. Depending on the treated areas, most patients can resume normal activities in 2 to 3 days.
IS ACCUTITE SAFE?
AccuTite is a technologically advanced procedure. It is among the safest rejuvenating procedures available to patients today. AccuTite is equipped with advanced temperature sensing technology to prevent damage to the skin and dermis. Additionally, unlike traditional cosmetic surgery, this revolutionary procedure doesn’t require patients to undergo the risk of general anesthesia.
HOW LONG DOES RECOVERY TAKE?
Because it is minimally invasive, recovery moves quickly. Patients may feel sore or tender for up to 5 to 7 days after the procedure, but they are often able to resume daily activities within a few days of treatment.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
A single treatment of AccuTite per area is usually all that is needed. Patients will almost immediately see the results of the removed fat. Skin contraction is often noticeable after 6 weeks but continues to improve up to one year after treatment.
HOW MUCH DOES ACCUTITE COST?
There are many factors that determine the price of a procedure. These factors might include the cause and severity of the loose skin. The number of areas being treated can also influence the cost. However, it is important to know that a treatment is more budget-friendly than a traditional surgical procedures.
